Dedicate a Redwood

Standing straight and tall, majestic coast redwood trees can be dedicated as living memorials or gifts. Depending on the age, size, location, and accessibility of the tree, you can dedicate a redwood tree in Big Basin Redwoods, Butano, or Castle Rock State Parks for $1,000, $5,000, $10,000, or $15,000.

  • $1,000: Sempervirens Fund will choose the tree and work with you to create a nameplate affixed to a stake placed at the base of the tree.
  • $5,000, $10,000, $15,000: Sempervirens will work with you or your designee to choose the tree, create the nameplate, and arrange for you to personally dedicate your tree.
  • Sempervirens Fund staff can assist you with a simple permit process to scatter ashes.

Dedicate a Grove

From the majestic redwoods in Big Basin Redwoods and Butano State Parks to the peaceful forest lands of Castle Rock State Park, a dedicated grove is a lasting tribute to your generosity and commitment to the preservation of the coast redwoods. We encourage grove donors to visit the park with us to select the right place to honor and remember family and friends. Each dedicated grove is celebrated with a handsome wooden sign bearing the recipient’s name. Dedicated groves start at $25,000 and vary according to size, location and number of mature trees. Often used to memorialize a loved one, Sempervirens Fund staff can assist you with a simple permit process to scatter ashes.
